Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger

封面
Bloomsbury Publishing, 2021年8月5日 - 192 頁
When a substitute teacher is called to stand in for Mrs Jewls, it can mean only one thing – strange things are going to happen at Wayside School. Miss Mush has prepared a special lunch of baked liver in purple sauce and it is pet day on the thirtieth floor. There are dogs and cats and frogs and skunks and an orange named Fido, causing a terrible commotion. Not to mention the arrival of the POOPS handbook in the playground ...

Enjoy all the fun in this enormously humorous and quirky introduction to Louis Sachar's famously dry wit. From top to bottom, Wayside is packed with quirky and hilarious characters who are all brought to life in this new edition with delightful illustrations by Aleksei Bitskoff. This is an unmissable, irrepressible story of mixed-up mayhem from Louis Sachar, the bestselling author of Holes.

I love how these books hold up and how they stay true to themselves -- despite being written decades apart. They capture the way school is its own complete world, how it works in strange ways that as a child you accept, how its people are larger than life. 閱讀評論全文

Louis does it again! Our favorite characters are up to their "strange" ways. I love that each novel ends a way that makes a connection to the previous books. 閱讀評論全文
